New Exhibits “Creativity on Display” (December 2, 2014 – January 31, 2015)
“Creativity on Display” offers a broad spectrum of fine art created by members of the Metropolitan Richmond Artists Association. Works on display include mosaics and oil, acrylic, mixed media, pastel and watercolor paintings. Artists had free rein in subject matter, media, and technique, so variety rules and there is a wealth of art created from the heart.
The Metropolitan Richmond Artists Association (MRAA) was created in 2005 from the merger of two long-running art groups, the Richmond Artists Association and the Metropolitan Artists Association. There are over fifty members, who promote and encourage the creation of all forms of visual art and share information through group-sponsored workshops, programs and exhibits. It is fitting that the group hold their exhibit at Uptown Gallery since Metropolitan members were instrumental in
founding Uptown Gallery twenty-two years ago.
“Art for Gifting” offers art fans the chance to own a small, original work of art, at an extremely reasonable price, by one of many Uptown member artists. Subject matter and media range widely, and there is something to delight any lover of art.

MAIN GALLERY & FRABLE GALLERY
Continuing Exhibits “Abstract Distractions”
In the Main Gallery, featured artists Patrice Reese and Janet Visser offer abstractions with strong emotions. Family memories, yearnings, ambivalence and other emotions that cannot be expressed in words all find voice in these paintings. Guest artists Amanda Erickson and Ron Holden, a photographer and a wood turner, bring variety and warmth to the exhibit with her photography and his rich wooden vessels. Around twenty other Uptown artists add their excellent work to the displays.
In the Frable Gallery exhibit, “In the Neighborhood”, oil painter Beverley Jane’s depiction of historic Fan homes in the warm fall sunlight remind us of the comforts of fall.
The exhibits run through January 3, 2015
The opening reception will be on Friday December 5th from 5 to 9 p.m.
